**MORE NEWS!! (7/02/2007)
The soundtrack for the film "A Mighty Heart", starring Angelina Jolie, features the song "In A Manner of Speaking" (written by Winston Tong) as performed by Nouvelle Vague, and is scheduled to open in theaters across the nation June 22, 2007.
We were told that the song would be used in the very last scene (shot in Paris with Jolie), and also over the closing credits. The music from the motion picture has already been touted by some reviewers as the "most gripping soundtrack of the year with tracks by world music's top artists".
The CD of the soundtrack, produced by Bulletproof Records will be released on July 17, 2007.
